Welcome to the "Kids for Christ" Preschool Program here at Sacred Heart School! Our preschool teachers are Mrs. Debbie Vahling and Ms. Emma Boehl. We also have two preschool aides who assist in the classroom, and they are Mrs. Audra Haarman and Mrs. Jody Kreke. Pre-school is full of fun and exciting adventures, and we incorporate hands-on learning throughout our curriculum. Most importantly, we learn about Jesus and His love for us!
